I put together this short for the 2009 Getty Images 'MishMash' competition. It was selected by the judges to be a 'Runner Up'.

The brief for the competition was to make a short music video mostly using audio, stills and video from the wonderful and vast Getty library.

I decided to also shoot some stop-motion of the plastic numbers I'd been using for my TXT ISLAND film and incorporate these into the library footage. There's a narrative here in which the numbers are bred in the lab for mathematical experimentation. The numbers escape from the lab and run free in the countryside.

tech notes:
Stop Motion shot with Stop Motion Pro software and Sumix 150M (monochrome) camera.
Composite & Edit with Adobe After Effects CS3.
